New Vintage Velvets for Fall

I was thrilled to be able to buy more of these wonderful vintage cut velvet or sculpted velvet upholstery fabrics a couple of weeks ago. They are from the same local estate that the others came from. A talented woman, who did freelance upholstery work for years, had acquired many, many lovely fabrics. Her daughter has been working to clear the house and fabrics and was so sweet to contact me again. Some are large pieces cut from bolts, and others are swatch size pieces, which are great for wristlets and pouches, and many have multiple colorways.
There are cut velvets ( or raised velvets, sculpted chenilles, not sure of the correct term)...

printed velvets...


And my favorite, the multi colored floral velvets! Here are just a few...


I have 2-3 large bins filled with these types velvets as well as other damasks, brocades, and
matelasse. Needless to say, I've been busy sorting and hand washing these beautiful textiles and creating new wristlet and bag designs for the fall and winter seasons.
Have a great week and happy sewing, everyone!

I really really like these cut velvets. You have some beautiful pieces and your wristlets are sooo cute. Sadly, I only have a couple of pieces of this fabric, but I'm thinking 60s flap shoulder bags.

Could I possibly buy a piece of fabric from you? It's so very hard to find...
